The Cincinnati Bengals will be headed to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Florida on Monday Night Football.

It is a bit unfortunate we aren’t getting the matchup of back-to-back No. 1 selections in Trevor Lawrence and Joe Burrow vying for playoff position. Burrow’s absence really does put a slight damper on what would have been a great game.

However, the Bengals are still technically in the playoff race, so this game becomes a matter of Cincinnati being able to pull off an upset. Jake Browning took the reins last week, and it was a bit rough at times. It didn’t help that the team couldn’t get the running game going at all. He will be getting Tee Higgins back in the lineup after he has missed the last three games.

The Bengals defense will also need a big game from pass rusher Trey Hendrickson to hold the Jaguars offense in place. Fans can also out for rookie defenders in cornerback DJ Turner and defensive end Myles Murphy, who seem to both be on the verge of breaking out. A great sign of things to come next season.
